Just across the water that “prestigious hotel style development of one, two and three bedroom apartments” offering “riverside living” are beginning to take shape.
And I notice from Andy’s pictures that the name Downtown is prominent.
For a long time this was just an open space with nothing more interesting than channels and pits but not any more.
And those views of the old brick warehouses will soon be lost, leaving the bored commuter to ponder on what once stood on the site of Downtown.
Well I went looking and I can tell you that in 1893 it was the Irwell Rubber Works which stood beside the Liver Iron Foundry and the Craven Iron Foundry.
And that is all.
